Is your baby gassy? You aren’t alone, most infants suffer from gas in the first 4 months of life. Here are some natural ways you can ease baby’s gas pain at home.
Gently massage baby’s tummy or bicycle their legs to help release any trapped gas.
Gripe water, like Mommy’s Bliss top selling formula, is a safe and effective all-natural herbal supplement used to ease stomach discomfort often associated with gas.
Try to keep baby’s mouth is above their belly and that they are not taking in too much air while eating. If you are nursing consider asking a nurse or lactation consultant about baby’s latch, if you are feeding baby from a bottle consider ‘anti-gas’ bottles.
Be sure to burp baby during and after feedings to release any gas that may have gotten trapped while baby was eating.
Regular tummy time can help baby pass gas better, not just when tummy time follows a feeding.
